Gluhwein is a German/Austrian winter-holiday drink that most tourists know as an after-ski drink. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. Watch it: since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick!
Hi a very BIG MISTAKE the wine MUST NEVER COME TO BOIL - 18 Dec 2016
Really good and quick & easy. I made the base to take to Mid Winter Dinner and added the wine at the end. - 17 Jul 2015
As someone who lives in Germany, this is the biggest holiday hit you can find! It is available everywhere in towns and the popular christmas markets and this is exactly how to make it. Although, I wouldn't add the water, but instead substitute orange juice to give it more of a zest. Drink it while it's hot! - 15 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
